Vintage Jeeps! Welcome to throwback-whatever- day-of-the-week-you’re-reading-this. We dig old stuff. That includes people, but on this page we’re all about the old Jeeps and their ancient stories. Got a vintage Jeep? Send it and the story behind it, be it military or just from back in the day. Like this month, we have a mix of old civilian and old military. The photo should be 1,600 by 1,200 pixels, or around 2 MB, and a JPG (maximum quality), BMP, or TIFF file. No PDFs. Email the photo and story to with the subject line: Sideways.

France Jeepin’
No shoes, no shirt, no service—unless there’s a tophat! Matt Howell’s grandfather wins the grand prize forever for having the best hat while Jeeping. This was Grandpa during World War II in France.

Yes, Murray
Robert Ciulla sent us this photo of his late father, Murray Ciulla. He’s driving a Jeep in England and served in the Air Army Corps in 1942. “He would have appreciated his picture in print,” Robert said.

Yes, Surrey
David Higginbotham’s dad was a Jeep salesman in Sacramento, California. His archives are loaded with cool pics like this. Don’t forget to glance at the background for awesome vintage authenticity.

Designated Jeep Driver
“This is my dad, James William (Bill) O’Bryan. Upon clearing boot camp at age 18, he was the designated ‘driving instructor.’ Being one of the youngest guys, he told me that ‘to get the attention of the mostly older students,’ he would hook a trailer up to his Jeep. He would then back the Jeep and trailer through the entire obstacle course. Sadly, I did not get my first Jeep until after his passing. I think he would approve.”
